Earlier today, Kyle mentioned that Chase Utley would be making an appearance on the Ellen Show to “warm hearts and presumably kiss babies.” Well, there were no babies around but Chase sure warmed hearts and brought smiles and looked handsome.
Utley was on hand to surprise Tabernacle, NJ’s Julie Kramer, a 23-year-old Phillies fan battling stage 4 synovial sarcoma. Chase brought out a whole bunch of Phillies merch and gifts for Kramer and invited her to come to any game she wants next year.
Kramer also whispered something in Chase’s ear and said what sounded like “’08 … of course, I can’t say it” while gesturing towards the crowd. Chase responded: “Of course, I’m totally with ya.” Only Kramer and Chase know what she said, but I’m going with “World Fucking Champs.”
